Painted Mask…

When I saw Ronovan’s prompt for this week’s haiku ‘painted & lady’ I chuckled, wondering what prompted his train of thought.

These days, I marvel at how much time some ladies spend painting and brushing and painting some more. It just seems too exhausting taking all that time applying layers and layers of makeup that one would wash off at the end of the day. Just a little dab should suffice.

The lady wears heavy makeup

I wonder if she recognizes herself anymore

beneath her bright painted mask.

  1. I agree too much isn’t good. On the other hand, you can consider your face another type of canvas and doing fun or bright makeup (in some situations) is a form of art. Still, often it can be used as hiding or in some sense camaflouge if ones skin isn’t so nice or even a camaflouge that allows a person to give themselves permission to act certain a way wearing it whether it’s more flamboyant, more artsy, or in some cases more authorative at work.
